21st Apr 19: I went into this play with no expectations but was pleasantly surprised and was enthralled from the start until the end... I especially enjoyed the Relationship between the two main characters

20th Apr 19: Amazing play Sammantha Womack was brilliant. Well done to all the cast.

20th Apr 19: Not sure whose idea to review as 'hilarious'but its far from that! Certainly not very farcical. Whether it was off night or lack of people in audience but even actors seemed to find it hard going at times. A few people did not treturn after interval and it was only my husband saying we'd give 2nd part a chance that we stayed! He said it was a bit better but I have to disagree!
Parenthood - The (Brand New) Musical Revue (St Paul's Church (The Actors Church), Inner London)

18th Apr 19: So glad this is on again. I saw it in November and we are looking forward to ending our day in London with this show. So funny I almost burst.

Just returned after the first half of the show- so disappointed. Very disjointed and difficult to follow- the goat was so annoying (although well played). The poorest show we have seen at the Curve I'm sorry to say.

16th Apr 19:

So disappointing, performed on an empty stage, well not quite empty, there's a plastic milk crate, some step ladders and a couple of wooden beams. Obviously all you could need to recreate a Greek island. Performers were great but I just found the whole thing very disjointed. Have to say the whole theatre gave a standing ovation at the end, so maybe it was just me.

14th Apr 19: So disappointed, had been looking forward to taking youngest grandson to see one of his favourite characters and story. The show didn't stick with the story at all,started slowly with rubbish not connected to the story and didn't involve the kids very much. Compared with other recent shows very poor.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Royal Hippodrome Theatre, Eastbourne)

7th Apr 19: I went to see this first time I have been to a musical. It was absolutely amazing. The cast were fantastic, funny and believable. They took you on the journey through their eyes and it was brilliant. I would recommend anyone going to see it.

Octopus Soup!
1 Chris N Toots
31st Mar 19: Absolutely awful script, plot and (over) acting. Totally lacking in humour. We left in the interval along with others. Could not give zero stars but would have if available. Don't waste your money.
